Drawing a connection to the veepstakes from this might be a stretch, but it's interesting to note that Mitt Romney, widely believed to be one of McCain's best options, is no where to be found in the top 20. Which I think, if we can stretch it even further, says something about Romney's oft-stated appeal with conservatives. When given few other options -- as in the primary -- conservatives like Romney. But when the field is wide open, it's a different story entirely.
